Do yourself a HUGE favour and stay anywhere else but here... I am currently staying at this hotel but will be cutting my stay short as it's simply unbearable.... honestly!
The "hotel" reminds me of a school camp facility I stayed at 20 years ago....More
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was perfect for a family of 2 adults and 2 kids aged 7 and 9. The proximity of the hotel to the village square is great, especially for the little ones.
The staff were very friendly in the Reception...More

Thank you very much for taking the time to review our lodge, I'm so happy to hear that you made the most of our facilities and enjoyed your stay with. Looking forward to seeing you again this year!
I booked this place to take my son during school holidays. (I should say that I have been staying at Mt Buller for over 40 years. I have stayed in many places).

I accidentally pre booked this accommodation via booking.com e.g. thought I was reserving with the option of opting out with out charges..got that one wrong. But hey.. Price was good. Very old style.. say 1970's. Close to town which is a tick and on the...More

Thanks for your questions - Jaimi-Lee is correct, vehicle access is restricted into the Mt Buller alpine village during the winter so you cannot drive to or park at Alpine Retreat or any of the other accommodations in the village. Car parks for overnight guests are located about 2km before the entrance to the village and, from there, oversnow taxis will drop you off at your lodge (costing around $24pp). Once you are in the alpine village, though, everything is within walking distance and there are also free shuttle buses to take you around the village and to the ski slopes if you prefer not to walk
